latinos and the gop. i did a documentary about the gop and latinos in the state of nevada. i think there was a sense it's the wrong message for latinos and you saw that reflected on election day, i thought. >> correct. and i would agree with that, the sense of our messaging. self deportation, however you want to spin it, is not attractive to hispanics, latinos or anyone for that matter. focus on the immigration issue as it building our economy, taking advantage of the american secret sauce and using this as a -- first of all, to get this out of the way politically, but to really, you know, help our country out. we need to have comprehensive immigration. we're hoping that we can get this issue off the table and look forward. >> you know, some people have said it's not just about immigration. although i know when we talk about the latino voter, me and everybody else, we all go to talk about immigration first. everybody has said it's not just about immigration. clearly i thought tone was a big problem for the gop. mayor for san an totonio told m the other day it's also about the conte

, virginia, colorado, nevada, those are states that used to be reliably conservative and seem to have gone into the, well, they all went into the obama category this time. we don't know about florida yet. you change those around, you have got a different president. what happened? >> well i think in large part it was the presence of the latino vote as a significant bloc, jon. i think this is part of the changing face of america in general and population. but in the specific context of last night's election it is the changing face of the american electorate. you take a state like florida, you know, used to be, you would think, it is cuban-americans. now as we heard, puerto ricans, people coming from all over latin america. they are not reliably republican voters. in fact, last night, cuban-americans went for romney but the rest of that latino population, way outnumbered them and went heavily for president obama. and you know this is reflected then in questions like, you know, which candidate cares about people like me? which candidate is going to reflect my interests, and for hispanics who w

incredibly important in this part of the country, remember we were so closely watching colorado and nevada, very important here in part because you look at the demographics, and this shows you the concentration of latinos in the southwest. and you look at all of these spots here and now they're turning from red to blue. >> 71% of the latino vote. that coalition between the youth vote, women vote and minority vote held strong for president obama and could be a sign of future elections to come. thanks very much. >>> meanwhile this election $6 billion spent and still a divided government. can washington break the gridlock in the next four years? more coming up. >> i'm at one of india's outsourcing hubs where people have been following closely. this time the rhetoric hasn't been as negative as it was back in 2008 because the situation has changed. india call centers no longer provide just basic cheap back end services to the united states. they've started to provide higher value added services. as people in call centers here say, without us, corporate america would be disabled. music is a univ
